Clash of the Titans (2010)

*. Pretty much everything I figured it would be, and a bit less.
*. CGI gods and monsters. The only thought that entered my head while watching it was what effect all this might be having on kids who have been growing up on this fare. My guess is that most of them would be playing video games anyway. Which comes to the same thing, doesn’t it? Or again, maybe something a bit less.
*. The story bears some resemblance to the 1981 original. Zeus (Liam Neeson) calls for the release of the Kraken. Bubo shows up only to be quickly dismissed.
*. Hard to think of anything that stands out. Sam Worthington has nice legs. The effects weren’t bad for 2010 but are starting to show their age now. Especially with the couple of shots meant to play in 3D. The film was hastily converted to 3D after the success of Avatar, which led to director Louis Leterrier disowning it. I suspect he wasn’t that fond of it in the first place.
*. I don’t know why anyone would have thought they needed to do it all again just a couple of years later, but they did, subbing out the Kraken for Kronos. There didn’t seem to be a big demand. The kids were too busy playing on their computers, and I can’t say I blame them.

      Gonna have to post some pics of yourself in short shorts or a kilt if you want to back up a claim as bold as that. You might have it over Sam in the blogging department though, I’ll give you one there.

        Man, you’re as bad as Eddie, always wanting “proof”. What happened to trust and taking the word of your fellow man? I think watching movies like this has rotted your brain…

        Well, no photos then. But if you could back that solid-gold dumptruck into my driveway and drop off some of the bullion Eddie gave you I’ll be fine.

        I’ll be glad to. WHEN he actually delivers. So far, not a gold dump truck in sight. I know the post office is running short of staff, but this is ridiculous!

    My legs are better than Sam’s and possibly better than Booky’s,(have not seen those yet) not so sure about yours, they were impressive unlike this movie.

      I’m sure you have great gams! Booky wants us to take everything he says on trust, so not much we can do there.

      Yeah, I found this review in my files. I wrote it a few years ago. Can’t remember a thing about any of it today.

      This movie is quite forgettable. Still remember the original with Harry Hamlin though. He had great legs too. And men’s fashions in classical days liked to show them off.
